    Anyone have a copy? ???

    Just curious.

    Can't seem to find them on the APSE site, and didn't see any previous threads about it...

    Thanks, Ace. The link didn't work, but copy and pasting it did.

    The second rule of APSE contest rules is we don't talk about APSE contest rules.

    You correct my quote and my link. That's the thanks I get?

    Go wonderlic yourself.

    That's not very nice.

    I wasn't busting your balls. I was just playing along. :)

    All right ... here's my real question. (With some explanation building up to it).

    I've got a feature story that I'd like to enter in the APSE features category this year.

    According to the contest criteria from last year:

    The issue I have is that my paper decided to run the (rather long) story in two parts, strictly because of space concerns. It appeared over two editions, but it's not really a "series."

    It was written as a single article and clearly reads like a single article. The story appears on our website in its entirety under a single link with only one byline at the top - as if it were a single article, because it is.

    As far as the contest goes, is there anyone in the know who can tell me whether or not I'm screwed?

    ??? ??? ???

    Your entry should be fine.

    I sure hope so.

    I'm not sure that it would win anything, but I'd be real upset if it were simply disqualified ... which with my luck, I can totally see happening. :p

    Story entries are submitted without byline and paper reference.
    Include the whole story. If a question is asked -- which I doubt -- consult with your Regional Chair. You're not trying anything underhanded so I don't see a problem.

    As a former contest chair, I can speak to this under the past rules. Feature category entries have to come from one day. If the story ran over two days, it is two stories and would not be eligible.
